Following the uproar on social media, the Minister for Human Rights Dr. Shireen Mazari responding to the incident said that she has taken serious notice of the allegations and has informed regional offices of the ministry.

Furthermore, the Education Minister of Punjab Dr. Murad Raas announced that he will personally deal with the case.
